    Instead of using the orbit tool to move around, you can use your mouse. Which of the following shows how you would use your mouse for an easier way orbit around your drawing and view it from any angle in SketchUp?

    Correct Answer
    C.
    Explanation
    In SketchUp, instead of using the orbit tool, you can use your mouse to easily orbit around your drawing and view it from any angle. By holding down the scroll wheel on your mouse and moving it, you can rotate the view. By holding down the scroll wheel and the shift key simultaneously, you can pan the view. And by scrolling the scroll wheel, you can zoom in and out of the drawing. This allows for a more intuitive and convenient way to navigate and view your drawing in SketchUp.

In terms of colors, if we imagine a line with a red dot at one end and a green dot at the other end, the midpoint would be the color that lies between red and green. In the given options, blue is the only color that falls between red and green on the color spectrum. Therefore, blue is the correct answer for the color of the midpoint.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Use the eraser tool
    B. Use the select tool, select and then hit delete
    Explanation
    To get rid of an extra edge in SketchUp, you can use the eraser tool or the select tool. With the eraser tool, simply click on the extra edge to delete it. Alternatively, you can use the select tool to select the extra edge and then hit the delete key on your keyboard to remove it. Double-clicking on the edge or line does not remove it, so it is not a valid method for getting rid of an extra edge.
